FSHD Undergraduate Students at Prestigious Research Conference

Five FSHD undergraduate students participated in the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Consortium (UROC) research conference (https://grad.arizona.edu/uroc/uroc). 

UROC  provides participants with excellent research training and graduate school preparation through

  • an intensive 10-week research experience under the guidance of a faculty mentor
  • professional development and graduate admission workshops
  • a free professional GRE workshop and encouragement to take the GRE during UROC
  • social opportunities and a support network of like-minded peers
  • poster session, oral presentation, and abstract writing.

Four of the  FSHD students, Ericka Encinas, Caldonia Mask, William Palmer, and Jasmine Wilson, participated in the UROC-PREP program. One student, Janette Carrillo, participated in the Minority Health Disparities program. 

Congratulations to these students on their participation in the 20th Annual Conference!
